Determining the author's purpose and point of view can be challenging for middle school ELA students. This resource follows an effective step-by-step process that will help your students learn how to figure out the author's purpose and how to determine the author's perspective.
When looking for author's purpose activities, I found that the usual method of using PIE just wasn't enough. So this resource starts with PIE: persuade, inform, and entertain, but then goes into many other reasons authors have for writing. Students also have to know that writer's write to describe, instruct, compare, criticize, prove, etc. And students have to know that there is more than one way a question might be worded. For example, a test question might not say persuade; it might say "convince" or "influence." This resource goes beyond PIE to fully instruct middle school students on everything they need to know about author's purpose and point of view.
Nonfiction Author's POV and Perspective now includes digital versions of each file! The slideshows correspond with the guided notes. Choose either the Cornell notes, interactive notebook notes, or the digital notes. ALL are engaging and require interaction!
The worksheets are beautifully designed and include some fun writing tasks and activities.
